Since 2021, cardmembers of The Platinum Card® from American Express have been able to get a free Walmart+ membership through statement credits against the membership cost. Just enroll for the benefit, pay for your Walmart+ membership with the Amex Platinum, and receive a statement credit offsetting the cost. While that might not sound exciting on its own, cardmembers have a few reasons to take advantage of this Walmart+ subscription — including getting discounts at over 14,000 gas stations and a free Paramount Plus Essentials subscription.
You can use this free Paramount Plus subscription to stream over 40,000 TV episodes, including shows like NCIS: Hawaii and Survivor — as well as movies. Or keep up with the NFL on CBS and the UEFA Champions League soccer. You'll save $4.99/month by activating this included benefit of Walmart+.
Here's how to take advantage of this roundabout perk of the Amex Platinum.
How Amex Platinum Cardmembers Can Get a Free Paramount Plus Subscription
To sign up for your free Paramount Plus subscription, log into your Walmart+ account and find the offer for “Video streaming with Paramount+” under the section called “Your W+ benefits.”
If you're already logged into your Walmart+ account, you can click here. Click “Get Paramount+” to start linking your accounts.
If you don't already have a Paramount Plus account, you'll be prompted to create a new one. Otherwise, log into your Paramount Plus account to link your accounts and start enjoying your free Paramount Plus subscription.
If you want to verify your accounts are linked successfully, head to your Paramount Plus account here. You should see “You’re subscribed to Paramount+ through Walmart+” in the subscription and billing section.
Get a Free Walmart+ Subscription Through The Amex Platinum
The Amex Platinum offers cardmembers a $12.95 credit (plus taxes) each month to cover the cost of a Walmart+ membership. Walmart+ includes things like free shipping and delivery, and it also offers free streaming services.
Walmart+ continues to improve its offerings and is gaining ground on Amazon as a similar service. With Walmart+ you can even save up to 10 cents a gallon at Exxon, Mobil, Walmart, and Murphy gas stations. You will need to sign up for Walmart+ in order to receive the Paramount Plus benefit. If you haven't signed up for Walmart+ yet, visit this page to get started.
The Amex Platinum‘s $695 annual fee (Rates & Fees) is a steep price to pay, but the card is loaded with perks. And some of those perks offer their own perks — like a free Paramount Plus subscription from your Walmart+ membership! A $4.99/month subscription probably isn't going to move the needle for many cardholders, but it's a nice perk to take advantage of nonetheless.
